VAISEF Outcomes Data Project

VAISEF values quality service provision and as such tracks member school success rates through the annual collection and reporting of outcome data. Entrance and exit data is collected by each member school and then reported as both individually, per each private day and residential special education member school, and aggregated data. Data collected is analyzed to address questions such the average amount of time spent in the program, the number of students served, discharge patterns (e.g. the number of positive, planned discharges to a lower level of care) and many others. We use this information to identify trends in service provision and document continued and increasing service needs.

Below are the access links and resources intended for member schools to properly participate in the outcomes project. We recommend bookmarking this page for quick access.
